Date: June 06, 2005
Updated: May 22, 2006
Dzip is vulnerable to a directory traversal attack.
Dzip is a compressor and uncompressor especially made for demo recordings of id's Quake.
Vulnerable: < 2.9-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.9-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Dzip is vulnerable to a directory traversal attack when extracting archives.
An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by creating a specially crafted archive to extract files to arbitrary locations.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Dzip users should upgrade to the latest available version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=games-utils/dzip-2.9-r1"
